Good Morning Skiers and Riders!
Welcome to March at Okemo! We started the week with some serious snowmaking efforts by our dedicated Mountain Ops team, and they are already preparing for the temperatures to drop again tomorrow to get the guns back up and firing away!
There is still plenty of winter left at Okemo and we offer the most open terrain in Vermont! For your Wednesday, we will have 13 lifts spinning from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. which will service 101 trails and 587 skiable acres!
The forecast for today calls for cloudy skies with a chance of a shower during the day, with temperatures ranging from 48 degrees for a low, to a high of 56. Snow surface conditions will be machine groomed and variable conditions, with edgeable snow from top to bottom!
Lift access prices for today will be $90 for adults, $79 for young adults and seniors, and $68 for juniors and super seniors. Half day rates are $68 for adults, $60 for young adults and seniors, and $52 for juniors and super seniors.
Residents of Connecticut and New Jersey, today is for you! Score yourself lift access for just $59 when you show proof of residency at the time of your ticket purchase! Minors must be accompanied by an adult with valid residency, and a Real.Easy card is required. If you do not have one registered in your name, one can be purchased for $5. Enjoy!
Our Okemo Parks crew has been hard at work all season long and there is no sign of them slowing down in the month of March. The AMP Energy Superpipe received a fresh cut this morning, but will be on hold for the majority of the day for a competition. Please also note that the Crazy Train Park is on hold as it undergoes a rebuild.
The Okemo Valley Nordic Center will be open today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., for limited snowshoeing only. If you are interested in snowshoeing today, please call 802-228-1396 for the latest conditions. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy the comfortable temps today, we also have our Ice House at Jackson Gore open from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. today with helmet and skate rentals available at the rink. Remember to save time to sit by the fire when you’re done your laps at the rink!
Happy skiing and riding and see you on the slopes!
